The past few years at GOPC have granted me unmatched opportunities for personal and professional growth. It has truly been a pleasure to meet and engage with local leaders in Ohio’s communities, and see the work they are doing to make their community a better place to live. There has been no shortage of inspirational moments during my years in this niche community of legacy cities.
As today marks Rep. Steven Arndt’s (R – Port Clinton) last day representing the 89th House District in the Ohio House of Representatives, the Greater Ohio Policy Center (GOPC) thanks Rep. Arndt for his leadership as a champion for brownfield revitalization and his committed leadership and dedication to the 89th district and the state of Ohio. Over the past year, Rep. Arndt has been an active voice in the legislature to advance the conversation on brownfields. Through his committed leadership, Rep. Arndt championed HB168 which was unanimously approved in the House on May 30. HB168 will establish the bona fide purchaser defense, which will provide liability protection to potential purchasers of contaminated brownfield sites.
GOPC wishes Rep. Arndt well as he embarks on his retirement, and we thank him for his dedication to advancing brownfields as a vital piece to economic prosperity for Ohio’s communities.
